I am one of those people who tends to volunteer for things and then later asks myself- now why did I do that? I am so far behind on so much that I don't know where to start?! And then to boot, I pulled my back gardening and have been horizontal most of this last week! Talk about frustrated! But today I actually can sit up at the computer and am doing much better!
I never have posted about my guild retreat from 2 weeks ago. I had a great time! The other ladies are super and the instructors were fabulous! The first day we had a class on the batik star by Augusta Cole. She lives in Richmond, VA and if you ever have the chance to take a workshop by her, you will not be disappointed. She was great! Here is a photo of 3 of my 40 blocks I need to make to make a bed size quilt.
I I learned a few new tricks and hope they will be retained in my memory so I can use them to be a better quilter! The next day of the retreat we had a great lecture by Augusta COle and then a pleated log cabin workshop. I already knew how to do them, but the workshop was fun nonetheless.
I think I will make a table runner out of the blocks. They are all batik scraps. One of my quilting buddies here in town will be proud of me! (Erin!)
My next project to work on is going to help my daughter finish her entry for the fair. She has been struggling with the outline sewing on her wall hanging. She has until mid July, but is going away for the summer in a few weeks, so I want her to get it done! I don't think I'll have anything that I really want to enter. Well, I guess I could if I didn't have so many other things that I need to get done around the house, farm and community. I need to learn to say "no" more often!
